Technology: It Really Hasn't Changed Our Taste in Music...

The past decade has witnessed the most insane upheavals in music technology. Everything's changed, but how much has musical taste itself changed during that period? According to data we've looked at, the answer is not that much, even though the ways we access, discover, and share our music have been completely revolutionized. Of course, some things ...

70 Percent of All Music Piracy Happens Offline...

The FBI can't raid this problem, you can hardly track it! In fact, most music fans would hardly call it piracy, yet offline sharing actually eclipses online sharing when it comes to the acquisition of music. The slide comes from an RIAA presentation leaked to Torrentfreak, with researcher NPD Group breaking out the ...

More Proof That Newer Artists Have It Harder...

or the first time this year, older albums started outselling newer albums, across CD, vinyl, and download formats. But this is a trend that's been happening for a while, and reflects a devaluation that is hurting newer artists the most. The reason is that albums simply put more money in the pockets of artists (and their ...

British Album Sales Are Officially Imploding...

When's the last time you bought a CD?

If the Internet is Global, Why is Music Still so Regional?

Sure, great music transcends borders. But music apps, for the most part, do not. It's a strange state of affairs: the web is global in theory, yet in the 'legit' digital music world, it's all about country-by-country restrictions and licensing hangups. Pandora is famously absent from the UK, one of the most important music markets in ...

Sirius: The Future Belongs to Those Who Curate...

Sirius XM Radio is lucky to be alive, and their growth hasn't been cheap. But with 22.3 million subscribers, this is easily the largest music subscription service in the world.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
